NFL Free Agency preview for the 2019 Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens Top Free Agents:
C.J. Mosley: C.J. Mosley is the biggest name on the list of Ravens free agents this offseason. Baltimore elected not to place the franchise tag on Mosley, and has stayed in the sweepstakes to sign him. Mosley is one of the most desirable free agents on the market and bringing him back is not even close to a guarantee. The Ravens want to bring back Mosley, but they will wait to see if the market allows that to happen at a number they are comfortable with.
Za’Darius Smith: It is very hard to envision a future where Smith comes back to the Ravens. He is an up and coming pass rusher coming off a good season. Pass rushers make a lot of money in the NFL because it is considered a premium position. Smith has a chance for a huge pay day. Several of the top pass rushers that would have become free agents have been hit with the franchise tag. Smith isn’t at the top of the free agent crop, but he isn’t too far down the list.
Terrell Suggs: Ravens football without Terrell Suggs would just feel weird, because he’s been here since 2003. Suggs could come back but it isn’t a given. He wants to retire a Raven, Eric DeCosta wants the same thing. The numbers have to work out for the Ravens and they don’t want to make an emotionally charged decision, Suggs offers valuable leadership and was productive last season, though his productivity waned in the back half of the season.

John Brown: Brown is a valuable deep threat that the Ravens may want to bring back. Brown’s production basically died when Lamar Jackson took over the starting quarterback job, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a good fit for the Ravens. Baltimore played it conservatively with Jackson’s throwing last year and they will have to open up the offense. Brown can stretch the field, but he is likely gone as the Ravens rebuild the receiver position yet again.
Robert Griffin III: The Ravens signed Griffin III to a one year deal and now they probably want him back. He is a good backup quarterback and he fits in perfectly as a mentor to Jackson. Griffin III probably doesn’t have a better opportunity in the NFL than backing up Jackson.
Brent Urban: Urban is an unsung hero for the Ravens but he’s developed into a very good defensive lineman. It’s not the end of the world if he moves on, but he fits in perfectly up front for the Ravens defense.
